Totally digital operation
Totally digital operation. Request via text were handled rapidly. Comfortable interior. Nice complementary breakfast. My only issue, is the primary view overlooked an alley, and the backside of a restaurant, which is not attractive.

2/10 Poor

Despite having stayed in hotels across the globe, the staff at this particular hotel proved to be the most unpleasant individuals I have ever encountered. Their rudeness knew no bounds.

Amazing blend of old and new
We've been very fortunate to have traveled to many countries over the last 8 months. We have stayed 50+ nights in hotels/ab&b/vrbos. The Annex has hit the top 5 of places we've stayed. The vibe is amazing. The creativity used to blend the old and the new is on point. The check in was so easy. The communication fantastic. The bar and cafe devine. The bed was very comfortable. The room well layed out. That record player was next level. It is not your typical hotel but rather a funky place to stay with afreakenmazing staff and comfort. And right in a very trendy part of town
